BE PREPARED! The USA will be witness to a total solar eclipse on August 21st of this year. For the very best shots, travel to the area of totality (a partial eclipse will still be visible and fun to shoot here in San Diego). But don’t even try to photograph this without attending Les and Mary Anderson’s “Shooting the Solar Eclipse” presentation. They will teach you everything you need to know to get the best shots and keep your eyes and lenses safe.
